The Great Library of Candlekeep

Suggested Price $0.00

The Great Library of Candlekeep contains 50 books for use in your D&D campaign - each with a title, author and synopsis.

This supplement was born from observations in the campaigns for which I am the Dungeon Master. It was a common occurence that my players would visit a library, rifle through a bookcase or inspect a bed side table. I would consistently be caught without book titles and, when the book was inevitably opened, improvising a book synopsis could be a stressful experience.

The books contained here are devised in such a way that they can be used exactly as they are within your campaign if that would be most useful to you. If there are variations on these themes, or different characters or locations which would be more appropriate for your own campaign I encourage you to adapt the contents to your own needs.

I have included reference to Candlekeep and the Sword Coast for flavour purposes, but there is no reason this could not be used within a homebrew campaign, indeed that is exclusively how I use it.

I assume that "Fey Gone Wild" by Artie Gann is a reference to Artagan from Critical Role?

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
